Title

An Experimental Study On Effective Utilization of Glass Powder In Concrete

Abstract

Abstract- Glass is used in many forms and for different purposes in day-to-day life. It has limited life span and after use it is either stock piled or sent to landfills. Since glass is non-biodegradable, landfills do not provide an environment friendly solution. Hence, there is strong need to utilize waste glasses. Many efforts have been made to use waste glass in concrete industry as a replacement of coarse aggregate, fine aggregate and cement. Its performance as a coarse aggregate replacement has been found to be non-satisfactory because of strength regression and expansion due to alkali-silica reaction. The research shows that there is strength loss due to fine aggregate substitution also. The aim of the present work was to use glass powder as a replacement of cement to assess the pozzolanic activity of fine glass powder in concrete and compare its performance with other pozzolanic materials like silica fume and fly ash. In this project we replace Cement by glass powder in the range 5% to 30% increment of 5% is studied. It Is then tested for compressive strength and flexural strength at the age of 7, 28 and 28 days and compared with those of conventional concrete. Results are then studied for which proportion it gives higher strength.

Key Words

Glass powder, natural sand, compressive strength, water.
